KD and Tatum pairing would just be absolutely lethal. Certainly risks abound but we don’t know anything about Jaylen’s plans and I’m guessing the Celtics might have some concerns. Who knows.Maybe the NJ experience was a little humbling. And if he was unhappy with the perception of his GS teams that absolutely dominated while he was healthy, well, I guess I would be fine with him being similarly unhappy here with a similar outcome.
I would love to have this core win a title together and think they have a great chance to do it if healthy. But this bulk of the current roster + KD goes from tenuous odds-on favorites to overwhelming favorites overnight. I’ll be happy with the team either way.
But a motivated KD with Tatum about to hit his prime is incredibly intriguing to me.
